Horizon Zero Dawn released on PC in early August, bringing Guerrilla Games’ excellent 2017 action-RPG to audiences outside of PlayStation for the first time. Though it didn’t exactly enjoy the best launch, with the game suffering from a number of technical issues, Guerrilla Games have been releasing a steady stream of patches to bring the game up to expectations. And even with the less than stellar launch, it seems the open world game enjoyed immense success in its launch month as far as sales were concerned.

As per a report by SuperDataHorizon Zero Dawn sold 716,000 units on PC across all of August. Its launch month sales were nearly as large as those of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt when it released in 2015, and “significantly” larger than 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Meanwhile, it also saw much higher sales than Death Stranding on PC during its own launch month, which sold 477,000 units when it released on the platform in July.

Considering Horizon Zero Dawn’s high sales on PC, it’s no surprise that Sony are currently exploring bringing more of their first party PlayStation exclusives to PC as well.

Horizon Zero Dawn is available for PS4 and PC. Its sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, is in development for PS5 and PS4 and is slated to release some time in 2021.
